Tubes are available for sale!


Prices have increased due to a 35% tariff, which we hope is temporary. Tubes are not refundable, and if/when prices go back down there will be no refunds of any type.


We are limiting sales to one purchase of up to 8 tubes every 90 days. Sales limits are subject to change.


Please note that if you have a PrimaLuna, you may end up getting twice the power tube life that other brands get.  In fact, if you are running KT120’s or KT150’s they may well last longer than you do!


Please don't try to trick the system or use a friend’s name, etc. Our systems may block your purchase and you can get blacklisted.  Everyone be nice.


At this time, we are unable to send Russian-made tubes to Canada.


Do not ask our sales people about other tubes! This is all that is available right now.

Tung-Sol 12AX7 / ECC83 

Price of NOS 12AX7s got you down? This new production Tung-Sol 12AX7 made in Russia is the answer! Very low noise and microphonics, but if you've got a really high-gain phonostage the new Mullard re-issue might be a better choice. Gorgeous mids, beautiful dynamics, and a nice 3D soundstage. If you're looking for a smidge more relaxed top end, give the Mullard re-issue a try. Price is for a single tube.

A quick note on this tube: The filaments on these Tung-Sols are almost completely encased in the plate structure. So if you don't see them glowing as bright as some of your other 12AX7s... don't sweat it. It's normal for this tube.

These tubes tested extremely low in noise and microphonics across the board, so we do not have any Driver Grade.

Platinum grade - The best of the best. Lowest noise and microphony with the tightest triode balance we have available. This is typically 10% or tighter, but may be higher depending on available stock.

Gold grade - Low noise and microphonics with a triode balance typically between 15% and 20%, but may be higher depending on available stock.

Driver/Buffer grade - Not available for this tube.

If you have a preamp or phonostage, you need at least Gold grade.
